Last Saturday, I was invited to teach a beginning embroidery class to 4 ladies who were staying at the Inn. We met around 3 pm and between sips of hot chocolate and yummy biscotti, they managed to make some wonderful little birds filled with lavender from the farm.
We did some samplers of individual stitches before jumping in to the birds. The ladies did a GREAT job - very creative and imaginative and diligent. I think it was fun for everyone!
I had dyed some wool felt pieces so that there were some choices to make when it came to decorating the birds. Everyone did a beautiful job - and kept smiling throughout!
After stitching up the sides, it came time to
fill the birds with lavender.
The final products! A full nest of birds - each with its own little personality.
We had so much fun.....can't wait to do it again!
thanks Lael, Susanna, Elizabeth and Sammi
I just loved meeting and playing with you.
